Life. In Light Of Eternity.

Putting Life in Perspective…and writing stories

Just Quote’n -Charles Spurgeon #2

The below is taken from Charles Spurgeon’s devotional “Morning and Evening”

If left to yourselves, you who are warmest for Christ would cool down like Laodicea into sickening lukewarmness. You who are sound in the faith would be white with leprosy of false doctrine. You who now walk before the Lord in excellency and integrity would reel to and fro and stagger with a drunkenness of evil passion. Like the moon, we borrow our light; bright as we are when grace shines on us, we are darkness itself when the Sun of Righteousness withdraws Himself. Therefore, let us cry to God never to leave us…Lord, keep us everywhere. Keep us when we are in the valley, so that we will not complain about Your humbling hand. Keep us when we are on the mountain, so that we will not become dizzy from being lifted up. Keep us in our youth, when our passions are strong; keep us in our old age, when becoming conceited by our wisdom, we might prove greater fools than the young and foolish. Keep us when we come to die, lest, at the very end, we would deny You! Keep us living, keep us dying, keep us laboring, keep us suffering, keep us fighting, keep us resting, keep us everywhere, for everywhere we need You, O our God!
